At one time, this attraction was considered a marvel of Disney Imagineering. Now, it lies neglected and continues to decay on the site of one Disney theme park.

Hyperspace Mountain, a thrilling attraction found at Disneyland Paris Resort, immerses guests into the heart of a galactic space battle inspired by the iconic Star Wars franchise. This exhilarating roller coaster experience combines the high-speed excitement of traditional Space Mountain rides with the epic universe of Star Wars, creating a unique and unforgettable adventure for guests of all ages.

As riders soar through the darkness of space, they are surrounded by stunning visual effects, pulsating music, and simulated blaster fire, making them feel like true heroes in the midst of interstellar warfare.

Hyperspace Mountain flawlessly integrates the beloved elements of both the Star Wars saga and the Space Mountain attraction, delivering an experience that transports guests to a galaxy far, far away without ever leaving the park. However, the ride’s positive aspects do not come without some major negatives as well.

What Happened to Hyperspace Mountain?

At one time, Hyperspace Mountain was considered one of Disneyland Paris Resort’s best attractions. Unfortunately, over the years, this reputation has slowly slipped. This month, the ride has suffered from some significant mechanical and superficial problems.

Recent photos of the attraction show it has slipped into quite a severe state of disrepair. DLP Report, which updates fans on the happenings at Disneyland Paris Resort, has kept fans informed about the updates on this attraction. According to their reports, things have not been looking great.

Closure Set for Attraction

Thankfully, the attraction is set to close and will receive some much-needed attention soon. Right now, the Hyperspace Mountain website has the closure slated to begin on June 3, 2024. As of now, no opening date has been given for this ride.

It is quite sad for fans to see such a beloved ride fall into such a state of disrepair. Hopefully, Disneyland Paris Resort will make more of an effort moving forward to keep the state of their attractions in better condition. With guests spending thousands on theme park vacations, the standards should be higher.
